Released 30th March 2015
The Dubdadda, or Jono as he is known throughout the reggae world, is one of the mainstays of the UK reggae scene. Hailing from Manchester he was a founder member of the renowned Community Charge – the best homegrown reggae talent in the UK in their era. After the demise of this band the Dubdadda was instrumental in forming Nucleus Roots alongside other former members of the Community Charge line-up.
In 2001 Dubdadda joined Zion Train vocal section and started to work on his debut album.
‘Lo-Fi Pon De Hi-Fi’ was originally released in 2004 on his own label Dub Hooligan Records and distributed worldwide through Universal Egg Records. During the past decade he toured the world with Zion Train as their main vocalist and released some quality tunes including ‘Boxes and Amps’ or ‘Terror Talk’, mainly on the Universal Egg sublabel Deep Root.
‘Lo-Fi Pon De Hi-Fi’ was one of the albums that had a huge impact on the work of our team at Moonshine Recordings, therefore we are more than happy to present this great piece of dub history on our label. After over 10 years from the day it was first released, Dubdadda’s debut album ‘Lo-Fi Pon De Hi-Fi’ will be finally available on vinyl.
